Very, very nice – would like to see a picture of it all closed up as well.

That’s a beauty! I’m thinking of a perfect place I have for one like that.

Did you make the top and bottom separately?

Yes, nice legs!!! They were the hardest thing about the project. Since I have no scrapers it was a lot of sanding to get the table saw cove marks out of the cove, on the legs and crown. And yes the bottom is separate from the top piece, plus the cubby hole is just slid in as well. Thanks for the comments.

Added closed up pic of the cabinet, it really darkened since the last pic I took of it.
